Community Crunch 211: Winter Wonderland 4


Recommended Posts

  • Wildcard Community

Winter Wonderland will be returning for the fourth time on Tuesday with all new presents for ARK survivors.  The winter-themed holiday event begins tomorrow at 10am PST for PC, XBOX, and PS4 and will last until Tuesday, January 7th.  All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus, however only The Island will have a visual winter theme.  


One of our most notable helpers, RaptorClaus, will be back to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors.  You'll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

GachaClaus is also returning to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer!  GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in holiday garb and sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and a brand new event item, Chibis!


While Winter Wonderland is active, you'll have a chance to collect over 50 ARK chibi petsARK chibi pets are cute miniaturized versions of the creatures you have become familiar with in your travels across the ARK universe.  Chibi's pets can be leveled up by killing specific alpha creatures and in return, you'll be granted additional player levels .  Some chibi pets may be harder to find so you'll have to visit GachaClaus and RaptorClaus to find all the chibi pets!  Can you collect them all?

Can you please address the characters lost during the latest server roll back!

i’ve had a ticket in for a week now with no response. 

First it was a LOCKOUT timer so I left my character in the ob and got off...

Then you rolled the servers to “help??” Some players right after I get back on and download to my server causing my to loose my only character...

now I can’t even get a “we’ve received your ticket and will get back to you in approximately ...” letter...

All week... crickets...

Babies... dead...

generators... running low...

imprints and ob... gone...

ticket... submitted...

all week... crickets...
